Student Registration Statement (HPC)

At its meeting on 10 May 2012 the Council reviewed the responses to its recent consultation on the most effective way of assuring the fitness to practise of students across all its professions, including the registration of social work students in England.


Following analysis of the consultation responses and the independent research commissioned, Council agreed that there would not be a student register for the professions it currently regulates.

The Council also agreed that in the long term the fitness to practise of social work students is best managed by the education providers in accordance with the HPCs standards for education and training. However, the Council acknowledged this would place new requirements on social work education providers in England and agreed to consider transitional arrangements to effect this change. These will be discussed by Council in June 2012.
